Here's something you've never heard me say before... I watched the ABC World News tonight and it blessed my socks off.
The very last story told how, in Atlanta, state officials, pastors and hundreds of people gathered on the steps of the capitol building and actually prayed for rain for their parched land. It made me recall all the stories I've heard of farmers and whole towns gathering to pray for rain ever so long ago.
Oh my goodness.... Some of the prayers were shown and right there God and prayer mingled with church and state.
And I loved it. I prayed right along with those folks and got all teary-eyed because God made it on the nightly news.
Then to top it off, I whooped and hollered when Charlie Gibson smiled and ended the broadcast by saying, "Wouldn't it be great if it rained in Atlanta tonight?"
Yes, Charlie, it certainly would be great. It certainly would.
P.S. Now, if you are one of those cranky Christians who are thinkin', "Yeah... the government comes crying to God only when they're desperate,"--please, please do not rain on my parade in my comment box. Cranky, negative, sour-minded Christians make my skin crawl....eeew! :)
